Magome and Tsumago lie in the Kiso-ji path, surrounded by deep mountains. The Kiso valley region is located almost halfway between Edo (Tokyo) and Kyoto of the old Nakasendo highway. The Nakasendo was constructed in the Edo period (1600~1868). It linked Edo (Tokyo) to Kyoto (532km). Through the provision of wood for the construction of shrines, castles, temples, this region has played an important role in the history, politics and economy.
Tsumago and Magome developed as post-towns to support the feudal system. The Kiso-ji path saw a lot of travelers, the processions of Daimyo (the feudal lords) and their princesses to go to and come from Edo (Tokyo).
There were 69 post-towns along the Nakasendo.
Magome was the 43rd post-town. The residents of the town built their houses on low stone walls along the Kiso-ji path. Toson Shimazaki, a great Japanese writer and poet was born here, you can see his footprints. There are souvenir shops, restaurants and coffee shops.
Tsumago was the 42nd post- town. It has been restored and remains the atmosphere as an Edo-period post-town. There are souvenir shops ,restaurants, and coffee shops as well. You will feel as if you were a time-traveler in the Edo period.

Very professional with all sorts of detailed knowledge on the subject areas, historical and cultural, some of which are from her own studies and research. We have greatly enjoyed the three days of tour with Rumiko.
Rumiko is extremely helpful! She provided recommendations on hotels prior to the trip and even help make reservations for bus tickets for our trip to Nagoya! She put in lots of effort to plan for our itinerary as we were towing a 5 year old boy for the trip. She ensured that our two days with her were fun enough for adults and kid - she prepared quizzes and stories about the places of interest to keep our little one engaged throughout the two days. She is very knowledgeable about the history of Gifu and Nagano and Japan in general. Wonderful guide and strongly recommend her for anyone who wishes to have a good guide.
We had a wonderful experience in Nagoya with Rumiko as our guide. She came in very prepared and made sure my kids will enjoy and learn a lot of things about the places we visited. She surely knows how to entertain kids, elderly and us. Overall, she made our tour worthwhile and fun. I will definitely recommend her to my friends and relatives visiting Nagoya.
As I have to work, my wife and 2 boys have Rumiko for 2 days in Nagoya. It was the most wonderful experience to have Rumiko to take you around Nagoya. The boys truely enjoyed themselves and keep talking about it when they are back at the hotel. Rumiko has made a wonderful day for my wife and 2 boys. Deeply appreciate for all arrangement . Thank you for the wonderful experience.
Excellent, knowledgeable guide. Our hike was one of our highlights of our trip. Pace was just right, stories intriguing.
